Pedagogy Master Classes 2020-21

Violin & Viola Pedagogy Master Classes and Teacher Workshops
Rebecca Henry, Instructor

Note: Classes III & IV may also be held in person in addition to via ZOOM, TBD

This series focuses on violin and viola pedagogy and is open to studio teachers, public school teachers, conductors, and pedagogy students. A Teacher Workshop will follow each Master Class, in which Peabody Preparatory students perform. Each year, a different set of topics will be explored.

Each session will include Peabody Preparatory student performers of a variety of levels unless a level for the class is specified. We will integrate work on the session topic into the music the student is performing to help integrate their technical and musical practice and understanding.
